I have some good news and some bad news for you today. First, the good news: there are only two months until Avengers: Infinity War hits movie theaters. But here’s the bad news: an Avenger is going to die.
And as Unilad reports, the bad news is driving fans crazy with speculation who it is and how they’re going to die.
Let’s play Avengers “who will die first” bingo!
I’m joking, but that’s what the internet looks like since the news broke out. So which Avenger is going to bite the dust?
Well, nobody really knows, except Stephen McFeely, the screenwriter for Avengers: Infinity War. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, McFeely said:
“It’s safe to say we will say farewell to people.”
Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios added:
“The notion of an ending, the notion of a finale, became very intriguing to us, in large part because you don’t see it that often in this particular genre.”
But before you groan with displeasure, remember that Disney has plans for another 10 Marvel movies in the future. So, uh, you’ll get plenty more. A bit too much as far as I’m concerned, but nobody’s asking me.
On the other hand Tom Hiddleston, the veteran Avenger who plays Thor’s brother, Loki, has recently been publicly musing on his role in the Marvel movies.
Speaking to Comicbook, he explained his thoughts:
“That’s not a choice I’ve made, because what’s sort of accidental about Loki, is that when I joined the Marvel Universe, there was no Marvel Universe. There was, but it was much smaller than it is now. I’ve been so grateful to be a part of it.”
“I think Marvel had only made the first Iron Man when I was cast as Loki and they were in the middle of making Iron Man 2 and now, The Guardians and Captain America and Black Panther and Spider-Man’s coming. I’m just lucky to be there,” Hiddleston added.
One of the Avengers is going to die. But which one?
“Every time I play Loki, the challenge is to find new ways of playing him. It is a source of constant surprise to me that I’m still here. I never expected that when I started playing him. I feel a huge responsibility to deliver the character people know, even though it’s been four years since [Thor: The Dark World], and also to try to take him in new directions.”
Well, we’re hyped up, and there’s still two months until the premiere on April 27. So maybe rewatch the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War again, hmm?
Yeah… Things are gonna get pretty intense by the looks of it. So who do you think will assume room temperature?
